Computer Algebra compiled in slacko RC by emil:
http://boxen.math.washington.edu/home/emil/MathSoftware/Puppy5-slacko/maxima-5.25.1-i486.pet
http://boxen.math.washington.edu/home/emil/MathSoftware/Puppy5-slacko/maxima_DOC-5.25.1-i486.pet
Tempestuous' extra wireless firmware for the ath9k_htc driver (which is already present by default in the kernel) is apparently not included though, as my TP-Link TL-WN821Nv3 USB dongle was not detected. See: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=555425#555425
Installing that .pet worked, but I had to get online first to be able to access it, so having the firmware included from the get go would be great.
